Internship: Investigate and design analog sensor interfaces for low delay and high accuracy

Electrical engineering

In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Electrical engineering


Are you a Bachelor student in Electronics with affinity with Analog/digital design and knowledge of firmware development in FPGAs? Then this internship assignment is interesting for you.

Job Mission

The Electrical Development Wafer Positioning group, develops the electronics for several (moving) EUV subsystems. These subsystems requires multiple data acquisition boards and sensors for measurements of position, temperature, pressure etc. Performance of the data acquisition boards and sensor interfaces are critical and are closely correlated to Wafer Stage and overall machine specifications.

Job Description

You will investigate and develop hardware and firmware solutions to improve noise, accuracy and mainly the delay performance of analog inputs that are used for interfacing sensors which are critical for control loops of Wafer Stage.

Your tasks will consist of the following:
• Gather requirements for data acquisition (sampling, filtering, conditioning) and sensor interfaces;
• Investigate possible approaches and decide on an appropriate implementation strategy;
o Topology and building blocks
o Components
• Hardware design and simulation;
• Firmware implementation and simulation;
• Documentation.


You are a Bachelor student in Electrical Engineering. You have affinity with electronics (analog/digital) design and knowledge of FW (VHDL) development in FPGAs. You have good analytical skills, can work independently and can think out of the box. You have good knowledge of English, both verbal and written.

This is a Bachelor graduation or internship assignment with a duration of 3-5 months, for 5 days a week. The start date is as soon as possible.

Please keep in mind that we can only consider students (who are enrolled at a school during the whole internship period) for our internships and graduation assignments.

What ASML offers
Your internship will be in one of the leading Dutch corporations, gaining valuable experience in a highly dynamic environment. You will receive a monthly internship allowance of 500 euro (maximum), plus a possible housing or travel allowance. In addition, you’ll get expert, practical guidance and the chance to work in and experience a dynamic, innovative team environment.

ASML: Be part of progress
We make machines that make chips – the hearts of the devices that keep us informed, entertained and safe; that improve our quality of life and help to tackle the world’s toughest problems.

We build some of the most amazing machines that you will ever see, and the software to run them. Never satisfied, we measure our performance in units that begin with pico or nano.

We believe we can always do better. We believe the winning idea can come from anyone. We love what we do – not because it’s easy, but because it’s hard.

Students: Getting ready for real-world R&D
Pushing technology further is teamwork, and our R&D team is more than 5,500 people strong, with major sites on three continents. Dozens of diverse, interdisciplinary teams work in parallel to meet a challenging development schedule.

In such an environment, your colleagues may be sitting next door, or they could be thousands of kilometers away in a different country, or even working for a different company.

An internship at ASML is your opportunity to get to know this world of industrial-strength R&D and get a feel for that excites you most. Will you design a part of the machine, or make sure it gets built to the tightest possible specifications? Will you write software that drives the system to its best performance, or work side-by-side with the engineers of our customers in a fab, optimizing a system to the requirements of the customer?

How will you be part of progress?
